    I have five cords of wood, a pantry full of home canned food, and a chitload of annual leave. I'm with Scotty and the others, BRING IT ON!:eek:

    I have the wood and the canned food (generator too) but no vacation time-I'll pass. Eight days without power during Sandy was enough for a while. A foot or three of white stuff doesn't bother me, heck I love getting out with my lab in the snow, but just no Nor'easters or ice storms-please!?

    What are all you guys talking about? Winter, of course its gonna be bad, matter of fact, isn't the end of the world in a couple weeks. Hows that not a bad winter? PREPARE 12-21-12 :eek:

    Like brotha bart said raise your right hand and repeat after me... " We're Screwed! "

    If we survived 12-31-99, I think we'll be ok on 12-21-12 too. What I am really concerned with is the year 2112.

    I figure if it's gonna be cold we should at least have a bit of snow to cover all the trash and brown grass along the sides of the roads. I have up my Xmas lights already to frighten away any "bad" weather. When you see the cloud cover split as it passes of NH, you'll know why.

    I would go play in the snow with it.

    The beach sounds good also.

    I'm doing both . . . playing in the snow (when it gets here) with the sled . . . and going on a cruise to hang out on the beach in February.

    I did my snow sports when I was younger. Climbing in to 6" of clothes to go play doesn't sound like a bunch of fun anymore.
